Broadcaster Press 11 October 2, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com South Dakota Department Of Tourism Kicks Off New Marketing Efforts To Continue Visitor Momentum PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Tourism kicked off its fall and winter marketing efforts in September to build upon the 13.9 million visitors and $3.88 billion in visitor spending the state experienced by the state in 2017. Included in the efforts are partnerships with major brands like the Minnesota Vikings, Pheasants Forever and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade®. Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Tourism James Hagen said these and other partnerships will provide valuable reach to potential visitors throughout the region and across the nation. “Working jointly towards shared goals in partnerships like these is a cost-effective way to reach new audiences,” said Hagen. “These efforts are a bit different from our traditional media buys, but they’ve proven to be highly effective in reaching both targeted audiences and new potential visitors.” Efforts with the Minnesota Vikings and Pheasants Forever began this August and will run through December, which aligns with the rest of the department's late season efforts. 2019 marks the department's ninth year in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with the “Mount Rushmore’s American Pride” float. Along with these partnerships, the department's advertising efforts include magazines, direct-mail pieces, podcast advertisements, digital ads, social media placements and the launch of two new TV spots featuring more of the state's “Great Faces, Great Places.” Efforts will highlight the fall experience in South Dakota by showing diverse wildlife, natural beauty and world-class attractions. Key audiences targeted by the department include couples without children in the household, visitors looking for iconic national and state parks, visitors seeking active and memorable outdoor adventure, and hunters looking to bag their pheasant limit.
